that are offended, and how we cover every religion in america? politicians are elected to legislate, although i would say that this political body in washington needs a lot more than prayer and the problem here is if i were an atheist and i am not, i do believe in god and etc., but if i were an atheist i would be offended for my first amendment right would be violated by my government and of course, the fear of what could come next that this could lead to an establishment of legislation that would benefit christians because many say that this is offensive to other religions. martha: sandra day o'connor said that it sends a message that they are outsiders not full members of the political community and you look at this situation, one of the plaintiffs received a letter that was signed with three number sixes, that if you feel unwanted, it is probably because you are. and it seems like the sort of falls into an almost different category. and i think most people agree it is completely wrong. >> you talk about that pe talk s first amendment right and no one is affecting that person's right to freed

they have to pay for it. you approve? >> the people who elected to congress that passed the law that elected the president who signed the law have decided that we want to make sure that health insurance when you buy it, it will actually cover you when you get sick. stuart: i repeat the question, what do you say to those 160,000 people who have received letters saying that their plan, the one they chose, the one they like is being discontinued. what do you say to those 160,000 people in california? >> i say take a look at what you're getting now. health insurance that will cover your primary-care visit, preventive care for free, go to the hospital and another that will be covered, go to the emergency room and know that will be covered. get care and health insurance that will cover the care they need. don't listen to the hype. take a look at what you're actually getting instead of getting so bent out of shape of the fact that some news. take a look of what we're getting. stuart: forced to take it at much higher cost. why don't you let people decide? >> they do decide. stuart: no, they don't. y
of years many hospitals have gone to asking people to pay the deductible indians for elective non-emergency surgery because they have had a record of not people paying their portion so that is a common practice it is not required under obamacare but more hospitals are doing that to be paid in full. >> that is true. but they cannot withhold care so then they may ask you get your surgery in another facility so you still get your care it just isn't where you want it. gerri: let's get back to phone calls. caller: when you have a an individual policy if you don't pay their premiums you are terminated what about with obamacare when they don't pay the premiums with the extenuating circumstance they cannot pay the bills? where are they in the system now? tried to find coverage? >> that is a good question and i don't think we have a clear idea is i know when you enroll if you don't pay the premium ultimately you will be dropped and also be fined for not having individual mandated coverage but that does account for people who cannot pay their premiums but i think you would have to reapply h
